I opened the curtains gingerly, saw that the haar was still here, and shut them again. How depressing – especially as I had the day off. BB was fretting about his homework and the fact that he had been too busy celebrating his birthday to do his homework. I gave him a hand, with the promise I would help him again after school. He was worried he was going to get into trouble for not handing it in today – I was sure it was due in at the end of the week – and in fact it is.
I hung my washing out in the gloom. It was much warmer gloom than the past couple of days, so I had hopes of it drying. Once BB was off to school, I thought I would make use of the gloom and go for a run – about half way round my route, there was a hint of sunshine and by the time I got home it was glorious and I was desperate for some shade. What a transformation. I did more washing.
I then went for a wander by the river and home via the supermarket. I had a late lunch in the garden and decided I would just stay there and read my book – what a contrast to yesterday, I had to keep re-applying sun tan lotion. My friend R was golfing nearby this morning, so she popped round on her way home – and we enjoyed a blether in the sunshine.
BB was pleased to be able to come straight home from school –but hid in the coolness of the house. Once R had departed, I helped him with his homework then cooked tea. I spent evening doing PTA work.
I took lots of pictures of flowers today – in the garden first thing and on my river walk. I rather like this pulsatilla seed head which I photographed in the garden early this morning. The hawthorn is in full bloom and I liked this tree (extra), which I spotted on my river walk.
